Samsung unpack event is scheduled on Feb 20, we are only a few weeks away from the original Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ devices. There are lots of rumors since last year, in this post we’re going to see what we can most possibly expect on the original devices.
Infinity O Display
The biggest change in the design will be the Infinity O display or simply you can keep it as a punch-hole display. To avoid the notch the earpiece might be pushed almost to the top edge of the phone and in the punch hole space, you will be having your front camera lenses.
In galaxy S10 we can expect a single camera and in the S10+ we might see a dual front camera. The secondary camera on the front may be a wide-angle lens to cover more area in your selfies, just like in the Pixel 3 devices. Even it is a notch-less design, still, you will get a lot of unusable spaces at the top in many applications for showing notifications. Inbuilt applications will make use of the full screen, but third-party apps will still take some time to get adjusted to this design.
As said before you will get a single front-facing camera in the S10 version and dual camera in the S10+ version. The rear camera might get interesting this year. Just like in the Huawei P20 Pro, you will be having a triple camera system; expected to be like the one in previous LG phone, one telephoto camera, one will be a wide angle camera and the other will be a normal camera. You might still get the optic sensor near the flash area to read the heart and blood pressure.
In this version also you can expect the ultra slowmo options and AI features. A new feature called Bright Night was discovered in the camera app inside the OneUI, this might be the Samsung version Pixel’s Night Sight feature.
In-display Finger Print Sensor
Sources suggest that Galaxy S10’s in-display fingerprint sensors will be powered by Qualcomm’s third-generation ultrasonic technology. Last year’s S9 has a very awkward biometric scanner position. If the in-display fingerprint technology is not there, I would love to see the backside biometric sensors placed just like in the Note9 device.
Samsung is reportedly working on the new UI, a better version of Samsung’s Experience UI, designed especially for the Infinity-O display. I would expect Samsung to make this skin light, but unfortunately, it won’t happen. Since Samsung is working on a new UI, we might seem some gimmicky little features here and there.
Galaxy S10 & S10+ Specs and Pricing
Of course, these will not be cheap phones. The expected S10 lite version, the competitor of iPhone XR itself will be an $800 ish phone. The S10 will be priced around $1000 and the S10+ will be $1500. Since the last year, Note9 512GB version is priced around $1250, the topmost version of S10+ with bigger ram and bigger storage will be closing $2000.
In S10 we can expect a 6GB and 8GB RAM variations with storage options starting from 64GB. In the case of S10+, you can expect you can expect 12GB RAM and storage options starting from 128GB and the topmost version might be having storage in TBs.
The most anticipated foldable display phone may or may not see the light in this event. I would be skeptical about this device in this event. If I come across any leak, will share with you folks, subscribe to stay updated.
